Accepted Solution

A:
1) average weight=the sum of weights divided by number of buckets
average weight=(2.79+2.45+2.62)÷3
=2.62

2) recipe calls for 4 4/5=4+(4÷5)
=4.8
1 1/3=1+(1÷3)=4/3
So 4.8 times 4/3=6.4

3) Jordan took 1+1/2=1.5 hours
Kasey 3/4 an hour longer than Jordan
So Kasey took 1.5+(3÷4)=2.25 hours

4) 32.5÷(−0.08)=−406.25

5) 4.3x= 81.7
Solve for x by dividing both sides by 4.3 to get
X=81.7÷4.3
X=19

Hope it helps!
